    It involves the chamber being reamed so that the shoulder angle is sharper and the case will hold more powder. According to a riflesmith, it is a straighforward job if you have the necessary tool. I considered it but when one looks at the improvements made to Hornet ballistics by modern powder loads, pistol primers and bullet availability, I was not convinced and decided to leave the old BSA as original.

    Plus a trip to proof house,more dies.Much easier to pull your 222 out of the cabinet!

    I once read an article in a book called, "Wildcat Cartridges". Apparently with modern powders its not really worth the bother unless you are very keen. I think you can get approx 10% more powder in for about 4% more velocity. But I'm only parroting the book !

    Real world ballistic show that velocity increases at a rate of 1/4 the increase in case capacity when loaded to identical pressures, while changing no other variables such as powder, bullet, barrel, and barrel length. So a 10% increase in case capacity will yield a 2.5% increase in velocity.~Muir
